This is a prayer made to Lord Ganesha usually in the mornings.
Praathah smaraami Gananaatha manatha bandhum
Sindhoora poorna parisobitha gandayugmam
Udhhanda vigna parikhandana chanda dhandam
Akandalaadhi suranaayaka brundha vandhyam
(Every morning I pray to Ganesha, who is the leader of all Gods,
He is a friend to one who has no one else.
He who is beautified by kumkum annointed on his trunk,
He deserves to be worshipped by all the Gods.)
Praathar namaami chathuraanaana vandhyamanam
Ichanukoolaamakhilam cha varam dadhaanam
Than thundilam dhvirasadhapriya yagna soothram
Puthram vilasa chathuram shivayo shivaaya
(I pray first in the morning to Ganesha,
who is also worshipped by Brahma and his group.
He is capable of fulfilling all the desires of his devotees.
I pray to Him, who is the son of Shiva and Parvati,
who are immersed in a celestial dance. )
Praathar bhajamya bhayatham khalubhaktha shokha
Dhavaanalam gana vibham vara kunjaraasyam
Athnyana kaalana vinaachana havya bhaaha
Uthsaha vardhana maham suthameeshvarasya
(I pray to Him in the morning,
Who blesses his devotees with freedom from fear.
He, who is the leader of his group,
removes immense grief and makes his devotees peaceful.
He destroys ignorance, which is as dense as a forest.
He reenergizes his devotees, son of Shiva,
I pray to Him.)
